Construction Law

We have a specialist team of in-house construction lawyers with years of experience in helping individuals and construction companies handle or avoid claims. What’s more, our construction claims management service starts at 10% of the sum recovered. Across the board we offer generous funding structures to allow smaller contractors to assert their rights against listed companies.

Complex contracts set out by large companies can often leave individuals, subcontractors or small contractors accepting less payment than they’re truly entitled to due to a lack of legal expertise and not knowing how to deal with complicated excuses for delaying or avoiding payment.

In construction disputes, it’s essential that you have an experienced construction advisor – general contract and commercial law doesn’t cover the complexity of construction cases. Our team can help you settle building disputes if you’re not sure which route to take or feel you’re being denied what you’re rightfully owed.

What We Can Do

Due to the complexity of building projects, construction disputes of all shapes and sizes are not uncommon – but there are plenty of different ways to resolve them. Our specialist construction dispute lawyers are able to give expert advice and maximise your recovery in the following areas:

In large projects, interim payments are made throughout the construction period before final accounts are decided. If you feel your payment has been unjustly delayed, is too small, or you need help writing or serving notices, seek legal advice from Helix Law today.

Recovering retention money after a job is complete can sometimes be made difficult – large companies can make excuses to delay repayment or to avoid paying altogether. Helix Law has helped countless contractors win back their rightful retention, No Win No Fee.

Final accounts in construction are often called into question, especially in large projects that have taken a long time to complete. These types of projects can involve hundreds of people and things can get very complicated. Helix Law can help you ascertain what you should receive from a final account and help you resolve disputes. If you are involved in a dispute over defects, delay, payment, termination or design then contact us for specialist construction contract advice that could help you save or recover more money.

Sometimes adjudication is not your best option. Our construction lawyers can advise which method of construction dispute resolution is right for you, whether that be arbitration, mediation, litigation or other dispute resolution method. Contact us today for advice on which course of action best fits your case.

Our construction solicitors have assisted in dozens of adjudication cases. We can help you achieve the best result from your adjudication process, or even avoid adjudication all together. If you have been served a Notice of Intention or would like to issue one yourself, it is crucial that your adviser is a construction law specialist. Call on ours at Helix Law.

Payment Structures

We offer many of our construction dispute resolution services on a No Win No Fee Basis, allowing better accessibility to expert construction legal advice. Other funding structures we offer include fixed fees, monthly payments and damages based agreements (DBAs). We will help you ascertain which method is right for you.
